Wednesday, October 20, 2010 sweet eden

I hate to admit it but my sweet little Eden is about as clumsy as they come. I've always known that she would be our first trip to the ER for a broken arm or leg. Well, she didn't break any bones, but the nanny called me at work around 3pm today and all I heard was, "She's OK, but....."

Apparently after they woke up from their nap they were dancing and graceful Eden fell and busted her head against the wall.

Luckily the nanny had already cleaned up her face and bloody clothes before I got home because my heart was already racing from hearing her cry in the background on the phone. WORST FEELING EVER AS A PARENT!!!

At the recommendation of our pediatrician, we took her to the ER to get it checked out. Luckily, since the cut was linear and not jagged, they only had to use butterfly bandages and glue instead of real stitches.

She did great!
Watching TV in the hospital bed while daddy relaxed and the numbing medicine kicked in.
All cleaned up and eating a treat!
She'll probably have a little black eye tomorrow but other than that and a potential scar, she will be fine.


  1. Poor baby! Those kind of ER visits are not fun. Elyssa's broken her arm twice, Mark got stitches in his chin, then under his eye, and broke an arm. Thomas got stitches in his ankle. Sigh...good times!

  2. Oh wow - I pray that we will not have the same story years from now!!! :)

  3. Poor little Eden, I hope she gets well soon. Be careful next time honey!
